Nursery school

Primary school

High school

Technical college

Technikon

University

Write down the name of your own school in the space provided below, and the names of other places in your town or city where educational services are rendered. You will see that the larger the town / city, the longer the list will be.

Activity 1

To determine whether educational facilities are within easy range [lo 1.7, 2.1]

If there isn’t a university, school, technikon, technical college or high school in your town or city, you must try to find out which of these educational facilities are closest to you, and then fill in the information in the space below.

Our town, city or suburb:

The closest to us:

Educational services Name Distance
High School:
Technical College:
Technikon:
University:

What advantage does it hold for young people if they live near a place where they can continue their studies?

2.trade services

Activity 2

To be aware of services rendered by people or authorities [lo 2.2, 2.3, 3.2]

You have already discovered that the larger the place (city or town), the greater the chance that there will be many different kinds of educational services available to the community. The same applies to trade services – the larger the town or city, the more and the better the available services.

The sentences below are all related to trade services and where they are rendered. Read each sentence carefully, make sure that you understand it, and then discuss it with your classmates. Mark whether the statement is true or false.

1. People will often travel from a smaller town to a larger one to do their shopping there.
2. If a farmer wants to sell 25 tons of potatoes in one go it will be best for him to take it to a market in the city.
3. A jeweller who sells only diamond rings should rather open his jewellery shop in a big city.
4. The use of computers is the reason why there are fewer and fewer banks in small towns.
5. Today, in the smallest towns, one finds CD shops that sell only CDs with classical and opera music.
6. More people visit a flea market in small towns than in cities.

In cities and large towns there are many people who buy products and make use of services. We say there is a big market . We know that the greater the market, the less expensive the product can be.

You will understand that you would rather make a profit of R2,00 on ten articles (R20,00 profit) than R4,00 on each article of which you sell only two (R8,00 profit)!

But when one speaks of trade services, one does not necessarily mean that only products or articles are sold. Many people sell their services , for example lawyers and advocates, accountants, travel agents, people who invest other people’s money, and so on. These kinds of services are more readily available in larger centres than in small towns.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
